Could you please add "white-space: pre-wrap;" in to the style string in the mail
body <pre style="..."> tags, to ensure that white space is preserved but long
lines are wrapped in the window. Please see referenced links to messages using
standard "Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8; format=flowed", and preceding
messages in this thread.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
